There are a lot of things I LOVE about Scrap Girls, but one of my favorite things is the opportunity to participate in Swaps, Challenges and Chats with other Scrap Girls. There are Recipe Swaps, ATC Swaps, Layout Swaps, Card Swaps, daily and weekly challenges, Art Journaling Chats and Challenges – just to name a few. I routinely participate in the Hybrid Card Swap, Hybrid ATC Swap and the Art Journaling Chat and Challenge. If you are a first time participant or a seasoned “pro” you will find that these events are always fun, pressure free and a great way to try new things with your Scrap Girls digital scrapbook supplies. I created these two cards for the last Hybrid Card Swap.
Digital Scrapbooking Supplies
Dress Die and Cutting Machine or dress template and scissors
Paper – linen card stock
Adhesive – two sided tape, glue dots
Embellishments – Small metal hangers, half pearls with adhesive back
Step 1 – Select a dress template or dress die. Measure size. Open a document and create a mat for your card and several rectangles for your dress.
Step 2 – Attach various digital scrapbooking papers and print.
Step 3 – Cut out mat and dress rectangles with paper cutter. Die-cut dress form or trace dress form and cut from various coordinating papers. Cut bodice, ruffles, neck line, etc. as desired. Assemble dress with 2 sided tape. Embellish dress as much or as little as desired.
Step 4 – Adhere panel to 5.5” x 4.25” inch card base with two sided tape. Attach metal hanger to card base with glue dots. Attach dress with two sided tape and glue dots.
We would love to see how you use your Scrap Girls digital scrapbooking supplies to participate in one or many of these fun Swaps, Chats and Challenges. Maybe I will be lucky enough to receive one of your beautiful cards from the next Swap. You can find details and fun ideas by visiting the Scrap Girls Forum.
Live each day creatively,
